I took a bit of karate in America & kendo (which is Japanese sword fighting) a little while after moving to south africa. They are both martial arts that have positive attributes but I Didn’t stay with them for long because i thought i could find something more efficient as far as self defense goes. I became a CSO (community security organization) advanced member here around 10 years ago & then shortly after that i also discovered krav maga & jui jitsu. So been taking those 2 for about 10 years now & am a brown belt (in both). The black belt grading was supposed to be at the end of 2020, but it was postponed because of coronavirus .
In addition I have been giving Keep Safe Self Defence Workshops for Women and Teenage Girls for about 6 years now.
